On her second album as Flock of Dimes, Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak fine-tunes the synth-forward style that has defined both projects to this point, dialling drum machines and other electronic sounds back while bringing guitars—sometimes thunderous and distorted, others gentle and twangy more to the forefront. The result, particularly on songs like “Price of Blue,” is something special, with Wasner’s vocals the lovely center-piece of her dynamic soundscapes. “I think I’ve finally reached a point in my career where I feel comfortable enough with myself and what I do, that I’m able to relax into a certain simplicity or straightforwardness that I wasn’t comfortable with before,” says the songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, who worked with Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn on her new album. Head of Roses is no less powerful for its simplicity, as its songs move from hushed to explosive and back again, becoming more than the sum of their parts in the process.
